I think I finally understood what you were trying to get across, although not seeing a period image from you, I wasn't sure what you wanted.
If you want the Landsknecht style, there is a set of patterns from Reconstructing History. Their wams and hosen is what you may be looking for.
Just realize the wams is not a shirt, it is a style of doublet (jacket) that has the slashing and pinking and shows either the interlining or the underlying shirt underneath the decorative pinks, cuts, and slashes.
The hosen is more fitted than the image you showed me, even when the outer layer is slashed, pinked and cut within an inch of its life. The photo you shared was a modern and very simplified version of what the Germans wore. This is why it didn't register in my mind what you were asking for until I was falling asleep.
If this is what you want, I would suggest this pattern. Do yourself a big favor and make a mockup of both garments in cheap fabric before you make it up in the better fabrics as this company runs true to measurements from my experience. You may also need an experienced person to assist you in fitting and sewing, as German fashions are not the easiest to create, but does look wonderful when done right.
